PHILIPPA LEWIS (PHOEBE WALLACE’S MOTHER, ABOUT HER DAUGHTERS WEDDING)
To the whole JK&Co. team;
Saturday was nothing short of a triumph!
All the talking, planning, ideas and hard work delivered what was a phenomenal outcome!
I, like everyone there was literally blown away.
It wasn’t as good as I expected it was infinitely better!
A masterpiece. Congratulations.
As for the whole day; the scheduling, management of all activities, priorities and deadlines; you achieved this perfectly with seamless, confidence.
You helped our bride enjoy her preparation and you got her down that aisle with a fun yet flawless outcome.
Your efforts made our special day exquisite!
Thank you from the whole clanRead More >>
Choosing a wedding planner was arguably the most important decision that I made during the wedding planning process. My husband and I were planning a Sydney wedding from Perth, whilst also travelling for work extensively for the duration of our engagement. I was looking for someone whom I could trust to take our vision and make it happen without my needing to be excessively involved. I contacted five planners, interviewed three and ultimately chose Bells N Whistles. I was enormously impressed with Jen on our first meeting – her passion for weddings was evident, and her boundless creativity was tempered with common sense. I felt that I could trust her to create something that we would love, instead of a cookie-cutter wedding.
Over the next ten months, Jen and her team were a godsend. They put up with our erratic travel schedules; I lost track of how many appointments they made which I then had to cancel or reschedule. They revised briefs and quotes, and generally guided us through the seemingly endless number of decisions that need to be made for a wedding. I loved that BNW always gave us options with different price points.
My general view is that when you have a job to do that you lack the necessary skills for, you
hire a professional then get out their way. We did this with JK&Co.and in return, they delivered
a wedding that completely blew us away. My husband and I both had so many guests tell us
that they had never had so much fun at a wedding.
The hotel manager greeted us personally at breakfast the next morning and told us that she
had never seen the ballroom so beautifully decorated before – quite the compliment from a
five star hotel. Most importantly, Jen and her team were always friendly and patient and easy
to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Jen and Jennifer Kennedy & Co. to anyone looking
for a professional to take away the stress of wedding planning and logistics.
When I met Jen I was a romantic with a dream. I’d met with a few planners, each ‘special’ in their own way, but none of them had the soul… that spark we were desperately seeking and needing. We needed someone who would just ‘get it’ someone who had vision, energy and a passion for creating beauty in an event that surpassed the ‘usual’ and far surpassed the expected. I needed someone I could work with, vibe with and adore, and well, in one email, I just knew that Jen was my woman.Jen just ‘got it’. She had vision, energy and an attitude that meant literally ANYTHING was possible. She was my ‘franc’ with WAY more personality. I never thought I’d ever be able to have a wedding planner. I’m a creative unpredictable being, so I needed someone to reign me in and make it happen, all wondrously fulfilled by the vivacious Jen. (who rocked it on the wedding day I might add, a great hit with guests and on the dance floor 🙂
In one sparkly fairy-godmother swoop Jen had us meeting deadlines, making decisions, involving the boys and making magic. She not only was the most organised and genuinely fantastic planner, but she has, I hope, become a lifelong friend; someone I was so lucky and happy to meet in the months leading up to the wedding, and let me tell you, on the day when suddenly you feel nervous about walking down the aisle, Jen is there, confident and instructive to calm you down and help you ‘glide’ or ‘kick and flick’ I think her words were, down the aisle.
There is for me, no other planner, then Jen and her team – oh my goodness don’t get me STARTED on her amazing team.
Thank you Jen from the bottom of our hearts!
With only 3 months to go to the big day, it was getting rather difficult for us to finish planning our wedding in Sydney from Hong Kong and finding the time to plan our wedding was becoming a struggle because of the intensity of our jobs which leave us time poor. Given our circumstances, when we asked, you took over the reins of the planning our wedding to help us reach the finish line, it was the best decision we ever made! It was so useful having talented professionals in the wedding industry to share ideas and ask questions – you are so responsive which is what we loved about working with you and we loved the weekly updates!.
We are so grateful for your expert orchestration of our wedding day – the day went so smoothly. We’ve received absolutely fantastic feedback from all our guests – with most comments being how superbly organised and seamlessly the day went!
We consider ourselves blessed to have had the privilege of working with you – you translated our vision with such class and professionalism. Every detail exceeded our expectations and our guests were thoroughly impressed with both of your talents. We sincerely thank you for making our wedding day dream come true!
Thanks for your support, and guidance throughout the planning process – and mostly, being
so patient with us!
To Jen and her team at Jennifer Kennedy & Co., Thank you so much for your amazing efforts and creativity for our wedding day. All our friends had doubts about hiring a wedding planner, but now they all understand how wonderful the experience is and how trouble and stress free the most important day of our lives are!
Without Jen and her amazing team, there absolutely would be no way our wedding would of been pulled off so seamlessly and so beautifully… I mean..who gets a cherry blossom tree constructed from scratch for their wedding? My husband and I both agree that Jennifer Kennedy & Co. was worth every penny, and if we had to do it again, we would hire them again! We highly recommend their services to anyone who is getting married, whatever their budget. =) Thank you Jen for making the most important day a dream come true.Read More >>
It has taken me 5 months to write this! But it is for no other reason than I felt I had to find the perfect words to do Jen and the team justice, (That and I’m terrible at organising, hence the dire need for Jennifer Kennedy & Co.!!) So here goes….
When I first approached Jen I was struck by how open, honest and efficient she was. Once we had met, I was filled with complete confidence in her and what she had to offer my partner and I. Despite others having misgivings about hiring a planner & stylist I went for it and a weight was immediately lifted from my shoulders!
Our amazing spring wedding in the Blue Mountains was put together in under 6 months. Some said it couldn’t be done but these girls simply made it happen, and in a bigger and better fashion than we could have ever imagined! The support and effort that we were provided was so far beyond what I expected to receive, and I am so grateful for that.
These ladies kept the wedding machine rolling while I dealt with numerous personal and professional challenges along the way.
I simply cannot thank them enough for turning our ideas into reality and creating a
spectacular, fun-filled celebration that we will remember always. I tell anyone who will listen that they need a planner for their wedding and the only one they need bother contacting is Jennifer Kennedy & Co.
Love you guys!Read More >>
Working with Jennifer to plan my wedding was amazing, she made the whole process of getting married as stress free as possible. Jen worked very closely with us to bring our ideas together. From the ideas we had she managed to sort the good from the bad so that the end result was a beautiful wedding day.
The one point that stands out when dealing with Jennifer is her professionalism. Any problem presented to her was dealt with efficiently and resolved to our great satisfaction.
Having someone with wedding planning experience to rely on and to know that person has thought of everything was invaluable on our wedding day. The end result was that we got to enjoy the day and concentrate on the really important things like the marriage ceremony itself and having a great time at the reception without having to deal with all the little problems that did arise.
I cannot recommend her services highly enough.Read More >>
Dear Jen and the JK&Co. Team,
It has taken me a few weeks longer to write this than expected because I wasn’t sure how exactly to put into words the absolute level of love, care and dedication that I felt you put into mine and Christian’s wedding.
We had a terrible experience with another wedding planner who left us in the lurch, and it was with a lot of reservation and scepticism that we decided to then approach Jennifer Kennedy & Co. but I can honestly say that you not only restored our faith in Wedding Planners, but I now know that we could not have pulled off our day without you because you went above and beyond to make our day perfect.
Working with Jennifer Kennedy & Co. made our wedding planning experience completely stress free and we were blown away by the end result, our vision of a relaxed picnic lunch was brought to
life and it was more amazing than we expected.
Each and every guest has since made the effort to tell Christian or myself that our wedding day
was the most wonderful and memorable wedding that they have ever been to, and we have
Jennifer Kennedy & Co. to thank for that.
I could not recommend you enough (and I will be to everyone I know who is getting married).
Thank you for everything!
